Zipped but not Confined

img_7446sm

Zipped but not Confined – see that’s the thing with jackets – if they’re not specifically made by plus size designers or brands, they often end up looking great on the hanger, but being too tight or ill-fitted when zipped. Well, that definitely wasn’t the case with the Beverly Zipper Jacket I’m featuring in this post.

Designed and manufacturer by SWAK Designs, a brand that totally gets and loves plus sizes, the fit was GREAT and super comfortable, even zipped up.

Now, if you’re like me and you like longer tops that go below the belly, you may be thinking how you would wear the Beverly, but when I saw it, I knew I could do a longer cami (also by SWAK and sold at SexyPlus Clothing) to create a layered look. And the seams in the jacket provide a nice tapered look that outlined my silhouette.

Throw on some leggings, like these Perfect Seamless Leggings also by SWAK and sold at SexyPlus Clothing, or some skinny jeans, and you’ve got a really nice walk-in-the-park Sunday afternoon Fall outfit. And if you’re wondering what that sexy thing is under my cami? That’s my harness bra, that I featured in a holiday 2015 post.

The Beverly Zipper Jacket also comes in black and berry.

I hope you are inspired to try something a little shorter than you normally wear, or even a crop (which can also be layered). Thank you SWAK for always making wearable clothing for us curvy girls!

Special thanks to Caterina Moda for snapping these pics for me 🙂

For Fall, Stand Tall & Think Pink

There is no reason pink has to recluse itself during the Fall/Winter season – it’s just a matter of knowing how to incorporate it seasonally with Fall pieces.

I recently discovered the Helen Hooded Tunic by SWAK Designs – and fell in love. I value staple pieces that I know I’ll wear again and again and this ultra cuddly hoodie is no exception. It’s a special blend of poly/spandex fabric that I haven’t felt before: soft and stretchy, of course, but also with a slight ponte/jersey feel. Not too heavy, but just warm enough to be comfortable all day. You’ve gotta touch it to know it. So I decided to style it with pink leggings, and my new low heel wide calf boots.

As you can see, the wonderful Helen tunic is long enough to actually be called a tunic, and hits at the thigh just where I like.

It is fitted, and of course I am wearing shapewear, but it’s still VERY flattering.

It has pockets which is a nice bonus…

And it covers my bum from the back too – although in this cheeky shot it looks slightly higher. But I wanted to show you the back, as well as the lace up detail on these awesome boots.

The Helen Hooded Tunic also comes in coral and heather grey.

So ladies, you CAN do pink in Fall and Winter and guess what, you can also do WHITE any friggin’ time of year you like!

Plus Size Outfit of the Day: Barcelona Lace

The Barcelona long lace cardi from SexyPlus Clothing is err-thang! Totally fell in love the minute I tried it on. And it’s so versatile – you can wear it to add drama to a dress – like I did here, or with jeans, leggings, as a swim cover, as lingerie. What a great piece to own!

Welcome Fall – I Harvest You

As mentioned in my previous post, I am excited for Fall because with each season, plus size fashion gets better and better. The Affordable Casual Collection by Point Zero Curvy offered at my boutique SexyPlus Clothing is no exception. I mean, just LOOK at this bee-you-tiful kimono duster in all of its glorious detail.

IMG_2453

Not only is the boho print so romantically autumn, but the back features a top and bottom lace insert, allowing your outfit (and derriere) to be seen from the back, and the fringe makes it oh so dramatic.

IMG_2474

I love tapered garments that can be loose fitting but still outline my silhouette, and this plus size kimono duster has just that. I don’t feel like my shape is lost.

IMG_2491

There are so many ways this beautiful piece can be styled: with jeans, a cami and leggings, over a jumpsuit, etc. Endless!!!

Now let’s talk about the LBD I have underneath. Also a Point Zero Curvy design, this basic a-line dress is actually not so basic.

IMG_2426

Featuring faux-leather braiding to decorate the soft v neckline, and totally whimsical chiffon bell sleeves.

IMG_2445

As a petite plus, the length was perfect for me, and my taller sisters may enjoy it’s above-knee look, especially throughout the season with tights and wide calf boots.

IMG_2441

The sizing was generous and I am wearing the 0X (I normally wear a 1X).

This is just the beginning and I’ll be sharing more Fall looks that will make summer’s end a little less painful.

Saying Goodbye to Summer 16

I have enjoyed Summer 2016 probably more than any summer in my life because I can honestly say that I’ve come to a point where my insecurities and societal pressures DO NOT affect how I dress. I’ve worn my hair pulled back into a pony because of the high temps, something I would not have done before because I didn’t think I was pretty with my hair that way. I’ve gone to the beach, worn sleeveless dresses all summer, showed my knees in shorts, and dressed according to the climate, with a sense of freedom and exhilaration.

So while I am sad that it’s coming to an end, the consolation prize is the AMAZING Fall fashions coming this way. As the owner of SexyPlus Clothing boutique, I’ve selected some fabulous pieces for you to welcome the harvest season with joy and excitement, like this ensemble from Point Zero Curvy brand, now in store.

IMG_2572

The top is gorgeous and I love cold shoulders – so sassy. The corset effect at the bust is just so me and the bell sleeves, well, that’s what I’ve come to love and expect from Point Zero Curvy, in that they never compromise details and style.

IMG_2577

The back features a nice V and the side slits on the blouse allow it to fall loosely on your hips without being clingy. If you are self-conscious about your belly, trust me this top is your friend as I have a pretty pronounced mid-section which is nicely concealed in this top.

IMG_2581

The length is perfect to wear with these super bad new leggings – the faux-leather sections in the front make them look like boots. In the colder months, I would wear these with booties and they would look like over-the-knee boots!

IMG_2566

In a thick, curve-hugging ponte fabric with large elastic waist bands, they stay in place and are truly uber comfy.

IMG_2562

So don’t feel bad about summer ending…Fall is going to be fabulous dontcha know!
